I can’t imagine not loving gardening, it’s a wonderful therapeutic thing to do and with garden beds wrapped around the balcony on the northly and easterly aspects and composting and garden tools hidden from view on the southerly side, everything is within a hand’s reach. In just a couple of hours and I’ve pruned, mulched, and harvested. However, this balcony garden isn’t just an oasis for food production, but also for artistic expression as Kate finds it is a wonderful place to sketch. She runs travel sketching tours abroad and whilst her art predominately focuses on urban and landscapes; Kate is inspired by the sensory nature of her culinary plants such as oregano, bay, thyme, lavender evoking memories of European travels. The joy of going onto the balcony and seeing the birds lots of beautiful lorikeets, kookaburras it’s like being on a mini farm and appreciating all the fecundity of everything coming to life in the warmer months.
